NASHVILLE, TENN. (February 26, 2020) -- T.J. Martell Foundation -- the music industry's leading nonprofit to fund innovative medical research focused on treatments and cures for cancer -- honored AMY GRANT with the Tony Martell Outstanding Entertainment Achievement Award at their 2020 Honors Gala. The foundation topped their fundraising record at the 2020 gala surpassing $1 MILLION. The 12th Annual event was emceed by Charles Esten at the Omni Nashville Hotel on Monday (2/24).

Reba McEntire had the Gala guests laughing -- and in tears -- over her warmhearted introduction of Grant, followed by a very special magical moment when Vince Gill and Grant's daughter Corrina joined her father on the keys during his touching performance of "When My Amy Prays."

Upon accepting her award, Grant gracefully noted that "The world will be changed in unimaginable ways because of our generosity and our effort.  All of us in this room tonight have learned the gift that if we give what we have there will always be enough; there will be more than we thought was there; that we can channel every good thing if we will just simply just open up. So thank you so much for this feeling of being buoyed up. I just want to finish strong.... this race." 

The landmark occasion celebrated a new class of local honorees, as they were acknowledged for their professional accomplishments, community spirit, and philanthropy, in front of an at-capacity crowd of supporters. Along with Grant, the Music City game-changers included: President of Morris Higham Management, CLINT HIGHAM -- Joel A. Katz Music is Medicine Chairman's Award; Associate Director for Clinical Research and Director of Phase I Research at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, DR. JORDAN BERLIN -- Medical Research Advancement Award; commercial real estate developer and CEO of Hall | Emery, PATRICK G. EMERY -- Spirit of Nashville Award; and community builders LAURIE AND JIM SEABURY -- Lifetime Humanitarian Award.
